No. of years in travel: 23 years. I joined the travel industry to travel, 25 years on, above all else that is still what I love to do, now mostly with my family. Travel for as long as you can, as far as you can is a mantra I live by.

23 years in travel. I still feel that child-like giddy excitment whenever I travel. I'm constantly looking for new ways to feed my wanderlust. I love that I get to inspire people's next adventures, and help to create the very best holiday for them.

Imagine the ultimate lifestyle that comes with combining a private yacht and luxury. A home that takes you all around the globe. This was my home for over 2 years, The World. My wanderlust emerged in 2013 and hasn't left me since.
9 years in travel. I was “bitten by the travel bug” at age 15 on my first overseas trip. From there, travel through South East Asia and New York cemented my love of visiting new places and experiencing new cultures. Travel was well and truly in my blood!
'Oh the things you can find if you don’t stay behind.' - Dr Seuss. These are my words to live by. I love taking peoples travel dreams and turning them not only into a reality but exceed their expectations.
29 years experience in travel. “If the world is your Oyster, I’ll take a dozen!” My experience with travel also strongly correlates with my other passion: Food! In fact, if you look through my travel photos, most of them include an exotic delicious dish!
My love of travel started of when I was young travelling around New Zealand. My travel bucket list has not stopped growing ever since!
No matter where, how or why we travel, there is always something wonderfully new to be found. I love learning about and exploring new destinations. I look forward to meeting you and working with you to create your personalised travel experience.
No of years in travel: 28 years. Travel has been bred into me from a very young age and I feel as passionate about it as I did the day I started!
I have assisted travellers in creating memorable experiences and satisfying their wanderlust for 5 year as a travel consultant in Brazil. Now based in New Zealand, I'm looking forward to helping you plan your your next adventure
Starting as a travel agent in 2003, I have build a loyal client base of travelers who want unique and interesting holidays. Having lived traveled to 40+ countries, I love learning about other cultures and destinations. I can help with your next adventure!
